As they began 19 years ago in 1992 with their first song being the Cure's 'Friday I'm in Love', they End it as their last song.
And with this Chris Payne, after his illustrious career, says this is his "Swan Song...", and that he is retiring. Thank You Chris Payne and everyone again for bringing such great personality and music to our ears all these years!
